Boston Bound from the Author: David Venable. David Venable, a six-time Boston Marathon finisher, has completed nearly 50 marathon/half-marathon events. In the past decade he transitioned from a novice mid-pack finisher to a top 1% finisher at distances from the 10K to the marathon at major venues. With international marathon experience to running in the extremes of Death Valley, Venable has compiled excellent experience applicable for marathoners that seek improvement or need an extra push to achieve a life goal. Compelled to coach other runners to personal bests and/or Boston qualification(s), he has written Boston Bound. Over five years of research went into Boston Bound, where Venable has captured a balance of proven training techniques, personal experience, and strategic approaches for running a fast marathon, with an inspiring addition of motivational stories. Unlike the books from elite running/authors that fill the shelves today, Venable writes and provides guidance from a non-elite runner's point of view with the key focus to run your fastest marathon while being realistic with the balance of work and family commitments. This book is intended for all runners who have the vision and the desire to Run Their Fastest Marathon or qualify for the Boston Marathon and are searching for guidance to improve their performance in hopes of running at the most prestigious marathon in the world... Boston. Profits from the sale of this book will benefit (through donations via Goals That Give Inc.) selected organizations dedicated to fighting the battle against cancer.

Long Road To Boston from the Author: Mark Sutcliffe. What does it take to chase down a lifelong dream, even after you’ve failed three times? And why have thousands of people put the Boston Marathon at the top of their bucket list? Long Road to Boston combines the history of the world’s most coveted marathon with the personal journey of one ordinary runner who seeks to fulfill his ultimate amateur athletic goal. Tracing back to the marathon’s roots in Greek mythology and sharing the stories of the many colourful and inspiring characters who have crossed Boston’s finish line, the book explores why modern runners challenge themselves with such ambitious goals and revels in the reward of a persistent dream achieved. Since the first edition in 1897, more than 640,000 runners have travelled the hallowed path. The Boston Marathon isn’t just the oldest marathon in the world, but the most esteemed. Every year, thousands of runners across the planet try to meet its challenging qualifying times, dreaming of stepping into more than a century of history. Some make it, others fall short and try again. Since the devastating finish-line bombing in 2013, the reverence and demand for the Boston Marathon has only increased. As the founder and back-page columnist of iRun magazine and the host of its radio show and podcast, Mark Sutcliffe has interviewed hundreds of runners who have chased Boston. And over the course of more than five years and more than a dozen marathons, he too closed in on his qualifying time, failing repeatedly, for one reason or another, before finally earning a place in the 2015 edition.

Boston Marathon 2010 from the Author: Raymond Britt. Rave Reviews for Boston Marathon 2010: "Great selection of 'around the event' shots that tell a story" -- Jonathan Beverly, Editor-in-Chief Running Times Magazine // "Awesome photos!" -- Dave McGillivray, Boston Marathon Race Director // "If you want to get to Boston, this would serve as great motivation. If you've been to Boston, this will serve as a cherished memory piece. I loved it." -- Gary Thomas, Boston Marathon Finisher // On Monday April 19, 2010, the Boston Marathon featured some of the most impressive racing in years, several elite and general field records were broken, including the fastest finish, the best American time, wheelchair milestones, number of participants and finishers, and more. The author, a 13-time Boston Marathon finisher, was there to capture the legendary race in images. More than 120 photos are presented here in full-color, in full-size 8x10 coffee table book format.Notably, this book represents the culmination of what is perhaps the most extensive single-day, solo Boston Marathon photo coverage presented as a collection, ever. From sunrise to late afternoon, from Boston to Hopkinton and back again, at the start, on the course's early miles in Ashland, and at the finish line on Boylston, the author was there to record the indelible scenes of this epic event.The author's live-action race photos have been featured by national broadcast, print and internet outlets for years. Boston 2010 was no exception; many of the images throughout this book were featured on CNN's global coverage of the Marathon. In the author's own words:"The point of the journey is not to arrive, but to celebrate the moments along the way. That was my purpose as I photographed the race, and that is what I present in this book: the moments that make the Boston Marathon what it is, the moments that make it legendary. "This is the Boston Marathon as I see it. This is what Epic looks like."
